Tuesday, February 9, 2016 – Pathway Analysis with MetaCore

MetaCore is an integrated curated knowledge database and software suite for pathway analysis of experimental data and gene lists. The scope of data types includes microarray and sequence-based gene expression, SNPs and CGH arrays, RNAi screens, gene variants, proteomics, metabolomics, Co-IP pull-out and other custom interactions which can all by analyzed in tandem. MetaCore is based on a proprietary manually curated database of human protein-protein, protein-DNA and protein-compound interactions, metabolic and signaling pathways for human, mouse and rat, supported by proprietary ontologies and controlled vocabulary. The analytical package includes easy-to-use, intuitive tools for searching and data visualization, enabling the identification of the most relevant biological pathways, networks, and processes in our “virtual lab.”

The core functionalities in MetaCore that will be covered include:

  • Key Pathway Advisor to find drivers of expression change from transcriptomic data
  • Expression data upload, filtering, and setting experimental backgrounds
  • Knowledge mining for information about a gene or disease
  • Basic enrichment and Comparison analysis
